Tee off at Dural Putt Putt

Putt your way through two 18-hole themed mini golf courses at Dural Putt Putt. The perfect activity for the whole family to enjoy.

Dural Putt Putt has two themed 18-hole mini golf courses to complete, Camelot & Space Trek. Each course winds its way through picturesque landscaped gardens and are equally challenging. 

Dural Putt Putt

Choose to play one or both courses. The Camelot course has really fun statues built into the course including a medieval castle, Rapunzel, the Sword in the Stone and the Lochness Monster.

Dural Putt Putt

The Space trek course features robots, rockets and some friendly aliens.

The course involves stepping through each each “hole” which has small steps and at times no space for a stroller or wheelchair to pass.

At the completion of the course, grab a snack from the cafe and relax in the fully shaded and paved seating area. No outside food is allowed.

Dural Putt Putt

If you go on a hot day, make sure you have hat, sunscreen and plenty of water. 

Dural Putt Putt

There is a large car park at the entrance.

Brays Bay Reserve was named for the Bray family, who were pioneer settlers with a land grant in 1794. Their home, named “Braygrove”, was built opposite the reserve, on the other side of Concord Road. Alfred Llewellyn Bray was the first Mayor of Concord (1883-1886) and Henry David Bray, Alfred’s younger brother, was the third Mayor of Concord (1890-1891).

Located on the banks of the Parramatta River, Brays Bay Reserve is a scenic spot, with stunning water views. It’s the perfect location for a family picnic, with plenty of wide, open space to run and play ball games. 

There are plenty of picnic tables and BBQs available for public use.

Next to Brays Bay Reserve is McIlwaine Park Playground. The playground has two seperate play areas, a fenced play area for younger kids and an unfenced area for older kids. Both play areas feature shade cloths.

Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway

Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway

A living memorial and commemoration site in Sydney’s inner-west, the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway honours Australians who fought for their country during World War II.

kokoda track memorial walkway

The walkway runs over 800m from Rhodes Station to Concord Hospital, along the mangrove-lined shores of Brays Bay on the Parramatta River.

According to the official Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway site, “A principal focus is on the sacrifices made during key Papua New Guinea battles which took place in 1942-43 along the Kokoda Track, at Milne Bay on the south-eastern tip of Papua, and at Buna, Gona, and Sanananda on the northern coastline.”

Kokoda

The official start of the walk is at the Memorial Rose Garden near Concord Hospital. The Rose Garden, features two semi-circular Memorial Walls, set amongst beautiful roses (visit in summer to see them in full bloom). On the walls are plaques dedicated to the memory of Australians who served in the war.

The Bruce Kingsbury VC Path links the Rose Garden to the rainforest-lined Walkway, where 22 audio-visual stations have been nestled into the bush alongside the path.

Each station describes a significant place or military engagement which took place along the Kokoda Track, at Milne Bay, and the northern coastal regions of Papua New Guinea. The lush vegetation lining the Walkway is reminiscent of the Kokoda Track.

Harry Potter Store Quizzic Alley in Drummoyne Sydney

Quizzic Alley Drummoyne

Harry Potter Store Quizzic Alley in Drummoyne Sydney

Find the finest selection of officially licensed Harry Potter merchandise in Sydney at Quizzic Alley, Drummoyne.

Quizzic Alley first opened in Canberra in 2018. A second store opened in the Sydney suburb of Drummoyne in late 2020. The store is owned and operated by Michael Milton, who decided to open the store after seeing a high demand from Sydney locals visiting his Fyshwick outpost.

Read more about the original Quizzic Alley store in Canberra.

Quizzic Alley Drummoyne

The new Quizzic Alley store has taken over the original Bank of NSW building in Drummoyne, built in 1928. While there is no Ford Anglia in this store, it’s still filled with plenty of Harry Potter magic.

Quizzic Alley Drummoyne

A trip to Quizzic Alley is not your regular retail experience. While the store stocks an astonishing variety of Harry Potter merchendise, what makes it really special is the staff, who love to talk all things Hogwarts, and meeting fellow Potter-heads. 

Quizzic Alley Drummoyne

Quizzic Alley is the place to find basically anything Harry Potter you can imagine. From wands to Gryffindor robes, Hogwarts Express slippers, backpacks, pens, puzzles, books, collectables and dress-ups, not to mention chocolate frogs and even a cup of Butterbear, Quizzic Alley will have whatever it is your Harry Potter-loving heart might desire.

Visit Camp Cove Beach at Watsons Bay, Sydney

Camp Cove Beach

Camp Cove Beach

Take a dip at Camp Cove, a short stroll from Watsons Bay ferry wharf. Millionaire views and calm water make for a delightful beach outing.

Camp Cove is a wheelchair-accessible beach located on the harbour side of South Head. Its calm waters attract families, while adults love the stunning city views and underwater aquatic life – octopus, cuttlefish, frogfish and the occasional seahorse can be found in the water for divers, while there is good snorkelling round the rocks.

Camp Cove Beach

Parking is extremely limited and in summer this tiny beach is very popular, so if you’re intending to head here, arrive very, very early to secure street parking. 

Camp Cove Beach

There is very little shade on Camp Cove Beach, so as well as packing your picnic blanket and towels, I recommend a beach umbrella or tent. We have a small tent that folds up in the boot of our car and is the size of a large beach frisbee.

Camp Cove Beach

As the water is so calm, it’s a great spot to bring a boogie board or kayak for a paddle. 

There is a small kiosk at the entrance to Camp Cove Beach selling snacks and drinks. It’s a longer walk to a proper cafe however, so BYO food.

Camp Cove Beach

There are shower facilities, and toilets are located at Green Point Reserve at the southern end.

Dogs are prohibited at all times.

If you have time, take the South Head Heritage trail, starts at the northern end of the beach. The walk has stunning scenery and also lets visitors take in the unique history of the area.

Camp Cove Beach

Camp Cove Beach was a place where the local Aboriginal community found fish and shellfish. There are rock engravings in the area depicting a range of marine creatures including whales and fish, and a a rock shelter at the northern end of the Camp Cove Beach that shows evidence of habitation by the local Aboriginal people.

Camp Cove Beach

European history at Camp Cove Beach begins in 1788, when Governor Phillip and the First Fleet rested here for a night before landing at Sydney Cove. A fishery was set up nearby in 1792 to help feed the new settlement at Sydney Cove.

Take A Dip In The Jellybean Pool in the Blue Mountains National Park

Jellybean Pool

Jellybean Pool Blue Mountains

Enjoy a refreshing dip in the Jellybean Pool, a short stroll down the Jellybean Track in Glenbrook, at the base of the Blue Mountains. The pool makes for a perfect Blue Mountains day trip with kids, who will love swimming in the calm waters.

Jellybean Pool

Located inside the Blue Mountains National Park, the Jellybean Pool is a relaxing spot to swim, watch birds or picnic on the shore. There is a large parking lot which fills quickly on hot days, and an overflow car park which has a steep walk down to the start of the trail.

Jellybean Pool

From the parking lot the Jellybean Track is a 500m walk downhill to the Jellybean Pool. The walk is graded a 3 as it is steep and slippery in places with sand.

Jellybean Pool

An $8 park entry fees applies – you will be charged as you drive into the Blue Mountains National Park. You can also leave your car at the Glenbrook Information Centre at the Starting at the Glenbrook entrance to Blue Mountains National Park and walk from there for a more challenging walk.

Jellybean Pool

The Blue Mountains National Park is open from the first Sunday in October to first Sunday in April 8.30am to 7pm, and the rest of the year 8.30am to 6pm.

Jellybean Pool

When visiting the Jellybean Pool pack sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, towels and any food and water you might need. Floatation devices are fun as the water is so flat. You will see boogie boards, pool floats and even paddle boards down there. Remember it’s a walk through the bush to get to the pool and pack appropriate footwear. 

Jellybean Pool

The Jellybean Track winds through the Glenbrook Gorge, past pretty mountain spotted gums, down to the river. There is a lot of birdlife in the area so keep eyes peeled for kestrels and other birds of prey, rainbow lorikeets and even blue kingfishers.

Jellybean Pool

The water is shallow and perfect for littlies to paddle in safely. Up river the water gets deeper.

Jellybean Pool

There are no bathrooms at the Jellybean Pool, or rubbish bins, so prepare accordingly and take your rubbish with you.

Jellybean Pool

The pool gets extremely popular in summer so go early. We arrived at around 10am and it was a little busy but still plenty of parking available.

Jellybean Pool

Keep a close eye on small children. Remember there are no life guards present and keep a close eye on kids in the water.

Jellybean Pool Jellybean Pool

After a swim, we highly recommend the 30min drive to Red Hands Cave to see amazing Aboriginal hand prints and stencils.
